Who would have thought that the fashion industry would have come this far? To be able to walk into major department stores and witness increasing options for the curvy woman is poignantly inspiring! And, the full-figured fashion industry continues to grow by leaps and bounds. So, who do we credit?
Well, … giving credit where it is due would mean starting with strong and confident women, of all shapes and sizes, as well as their supporters. After all, it takes a village, n’est-ce pas? A village of socially aware individuals that never take “No!” for an answer. All while blazing trails for the brands and icons that are emerging today. The Curves Ahead Project is dedicated to keeping the momentum. Let’s continue to shine!
To those of you looking off into the distance for the next occasion to join the movement, look no further! The upcoming DISTRICT OF CURVES Full figured Fashion Showcaseis an opportunity for self-proclaimed “Curvies,” and the lovers of their sensual curves, to come out and show support.
At 6pm on Sunday, April 27th, the Washington Post Conference Center will be the perfect setting for a showcase of fashion designers, boutiques, and gorgeous “Curvies.” Located inside the historic Washington Post building at 1150 15th Street NW, this Washington D.C. venue is both significant and elegant.
A stylish showcase with a major following, DISTRICT OF CURVES is an extension of The Curves Ahead Project’s mission to promote self-esteem, positive body image, and assertiveness.
The Curves Ahead Project was created by Mickey Armstrong of M.Armstrong Photography. It is a project that is centered on Full figured women, Full figured fashion, and the stories, anecdotes, struggles, and journey of many everyday Full figured women. It features models, business owners, and other important figures in the Full figured fashion community. The Curves Ahead Project is a glimpse of the Full figured community from a photographer’s lens.
The development and production of the project are delivered by contributions from donors, partners and sponsors. The Curves Ahead Project is truly a product of devotion!
